Resources such as iron ore, coal, copper, and gold remain in strong global demand. We pursue the growth opportunities in this business through our Group company CIMIC. The CIMIC Group has made a name for itself over the years as a versatile mining services provider. We continue to add to these capabilities. For instance, we increased our stake in mining services company Sedgman in April 2016 to 100 percent. An engineering specialist, Sedgman is one of the leading providers in the design, construction, and operation of processing plants for coal, industrial and precious metals, industrial minerals, and iron ore. We are also broadening our regional presence. For example, Thiess expanded into the North American market with a large mining services contract in Canada.
